Once we have identified the problems with your foundation and provided you with a plan and estimate to fix those problems, we can start the repair process. Our first step is to take numerous measurements of elevations around your house. We will typically get four measurements for every room in your house.
Next, we take a diagram of your house and input those measurements in the corresponding rooms. This gives us a great look at which areas of your house are sinking. When your foundation is sinking it causes cracking in your foundation. Plus, if your house is sinking faster in only some areas of your house, the foundation becomes unlevel. This can lead to damage in other areas of your house like walls, doors, and windows. Your floors may also start to slope.
Once we know which areas need lifting, we can determine where to place the concrete piers to support the foundation. We then dig a hole for each pier that needs to be placed and use specialized equipment to install these piers.
Here’s where it can sound pretty crazy: we will also use a special “house jack” (kind of like a car jack) that will lift your house. You may have thought a house couldn’t be lifted, but it definitely can thanks to innovations in engineering. Throughout this process with the piers, we will perform more measurements inside to ensure a precise repair.
